Materials (optional)

All finalized handouts and/or presentation files are due by September 2, 2020. We are not able to accept new or updated presentations after that date. Please note, we will not be able to edit presentations under any circumstances. 

Please note that Southern California Grantmakers will make handouts and presentations available to members following the Annual Conference. Please credit your work accordingly; if you prefer that your materials not be made available, please let us know as soon as possible.

Large files should be submitted via Dropbox, Google Drive, or another file-sharing app.



.ppt or .pptx format only (no PDFs!)

16:9 widescreen format only



Do not embed videos in PowerPoint presentations.

Submit videos in .mov or .mp4 format via Dropbox, Google Drive, or another file-sharing app.



Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate rehearsals in advance or on the day of the event since the conference will be virtual. A planning meeting will be scheduled prior to the conference date to discuss the session agenda, layout of the conference, and to go over technology.
